    Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone had any information on this company out of Denver. I've seen some ads for it on CL in my area and they seem pretty good.

    I know they run Reefers, hows the freight? Do they haul a lot of meat or produce? A lot of overnight runs? How are your miles? Etc. Thanks in advance

    You should call the company so you get both sides of the story. Reefer is a industry-leading money maker for those that will be on time everytime.

    Well my last company (Reefer) it was good but I don't know about money maker lol. I was on time, everytime. Exceptions where on the company side of things and/or out of my control. Denney seems to be offering a lot more (at least cpm) than my previous one. Hopefully they'll have the miles to back it up.

    Had an old dispatcher from cornhusker that went to work for Denny in Omaha who had lots of good freight contacts .
    After Denny stole robbed his freight contacts they gave him the boot .
    Not very ethical people from what I've heard .
     
    tucker and Zaros Thank this.

    The good thing about Denney is that the freight is pretty driver friendly. If you want to make extra money unloading they let you self lump, but it is never required. They run to Texas, Omaha, East and West coasts. During season the meat and produce loads do pick up but most of the freight is dedicated customers coming out of Denver and 50/50 dry and reefer freight coming back to Denver.

    From what I understand, Denney is where you go if you want to make a lot of money and have out and back runs. But I agree with DustyRoad, contact the company to get their 2 cents too.

    Hey I was just going to let you know that Denney is one of the best company's I've ever worked for. I make plenty of money everybody here is really nice they treat you really good and they listen if you have any problems. As long as you keep your left door shut be on time be safe and communicate. You'll make a lot of money here. So you can do all that call the recruiter. Ken 1803. The run refer we run meat but not the kind you would think its specialty meats. Miles are great. We do haul produce but mostly coming back to Denver. You will run at night. Hope that helped.

    Im on the fence about going to denneys. Ive been with my company for almost 2 years now. Dont like job hopping. Theres not much difference in pay. Going to stay put for now unless my company cuts my miles.

    Thanks for the input. Don't mind night driving as long as it stays consistent.. It really blows when you have to keep switching between night/day schedules lol. Forced chaining by any chance? How much do you run the I70 to Utah in the wintertime?

    Is every day pretty much night driving? And how’re you doing on miles? Also if lumping yourself how much of a pay difference is there vs letting them do it and possibly getting out sooner(or is it quicker to self lump?)?
     
    Zaros Thanks this.
